Assessment of prior foreign education

If you apply for study at Palacký University Olomouc and you have completed your prior secondary or higher education outside of the Czech Republic, you may substantiate your study abroad by one of the following ways:

  • Assessment as to whether you have completed prior education abroad for the purpose of admission procedure at Palacký University Olomouc
    The assessment does not involve a comparison of the foreign education with a parallel programme implemented in the Czech Republic. This simplified procedure may only be used for the purposes of admission procedure at Palacký University in the respective academic year (and does not apply to admission procedure at other higher education institutions or when applying for a job).
    Both the secondary education and the higher education is assessed by Palacký University.
  • Recognition proceedings, which is a lenghtier procedure to recognize foreign education (or a part thereof) and qualification as equivalent to education obtained in the Czech Republic. The Recognition Certificate may also be used in admission proceeding at other higher education institutions or when applying for a job.
    Foreign secondary education is assessed by regional authorities.
    Foreign higher education is assessed by Czech universities which offer the same or similar programme of study to the programme that you completed abroad.
    See detailed information on the recognition procedure.
